Good Nutrition For Clear & Shiny Skin
Your skin is the outside indicator of how your body is doing on the inside. Although important, taking care of it purely from the outside isn’t going to be enough if you want a glowing healthy looking skin.
Here are our top five foods for great looking skin
Water. Not a food as such, but essential for life, and for your skin too. Nourishing from the inside is just as important as moisturising from the outside. Have a 1.5 litre bottle of still water at your desk at work, or near you at home, and sip throughout the day, aiming to finish by the end of the day.
Oily fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel, trout, tuna). Apart from water, your skin also needs good fats to keep supple. Include oily fish as part of your meals at least twice a week.
Fresh nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds (except peanuts) are all a great source of good fats that help keep the skin supple and wrinkle free for longer.
Fresh vegetables. Most vegetables offer an abundance of nutrients that nourish the skin, but broccoli, red and yellow peppers, cauliflower, spinach and sweet potato are particularly good as they contain vitamins A, C and E which can protect the skin from ageing.
Fresh berries. Berries are an amazingly rich source of vitamins and minerals relative to their size. Have them as snacks, or mix into yoghurt or porridge to give a real boost to your breakfast.
